We enjoyed a quiet late lunch on the outdoor porch. We tried the Cuban sandwich and black beans and rice. Although we have had better Cuban sandwiches (in other states) it was still a good sandwich. The fried bananas (plantains) were some of the very best we have had anywhere. We look forward to trying other Cuban items on the... More

We enjoyed a 'swing', wonderful drinks and tapas lunch here. It is a unique spot and menu. The Cuban margarita is excellent, but spicy! The Cuban cigar appetizer is great. I highly recommend.

For a Cuban, tapas, Cajun restaurant, it actually had quite a variety of dishes. Vegetarian, seafood, beef, pork. While we did not try it, they had an interesting beer and four course meal pairing special, that sounded really good. We didn't have a ton of time, and we weren't famished, so the three of us split the Caribbean tacos, the... More

Uuuummmmm! Uuuummmmm! It's okaaaaaayyyee! These aren't typos, this is just how I feel! The food was good. Beautifully presented! I had Plantain Encrusted Tilapia, which I did not taste the plantains! The green beans were good. This is a nice change from the burger joints. Free parking across the street! Enjoy!

This is a nice little downscale restaurant with delicious food that has a home cooked taste to it. My only complaint was the 4 unclean water cups that we received until getting clean ones. Other than that, everyone in my party had nothing but great things to say about the dish that they ordered. I've been twice and will go... More

I visited this restaurant as a suggestion from a friend in the area. I found the area to be safe and inviting. Quaint little shops are all around and its just an inviting place to be. This is a Caribbean inspired restaurant. I say inspired because I have visited the Caribbean countless times and this menu did not come across... More

As a reviewer, I live to find places like this, hidden in an obscure location, unpretentious, and wonderful. Our server was surpassed in excellence only by the food itself. There are unusual dishes with spectacular flavors. We were there for a light lunch, so I didn’t try the daily special of duck, but Ill bet it was as excellent as... More

Boogaloo is centrally located on a very cool street which is essentially Main Street in Maplewood. The Cajun food is solid for being in St. Louis and they have a cool bar area where you swing as opposed to sit. A great place for a romantic dinner, family dinner, or just to grab cocktails on a Friday night.
